The communities of Brockton, Easthope, Shipton and Stanton Long are situated in the Corvedale and along Wenlock Edge in South Shropshire.
The facilities used by these communities are distributed throughout the Parish. These include three churches in Easthope, Shipton and Stanton Long, a thriving primary school in Brockton and The Feathers Pub and restaurant in Brockton. A number of groups regularly use the village hall in Shipton, including a pre-school and the WI.
The area has several farms, both livestock and arable, though otherwise very little industry. At present the area is without a post office and there are no shops.
The parishes sit within the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, an area covering 802 square kilometres.
At the time of the 2001 census there were 436 residents in the area living in 165 households. More than half of these were between the age of 30 and 59 years.
